A fascinating exploration by a foremost mathematician and cosmologist on the nature of nothing. From the origins of zero in ancient India to the early abhorrence and eventual acceptance of the concept of the void by Christianity, he traces the notion through the work of writers and thinkers from the ancient Greeks to our own time. He looks at math, cosmology, theology, and physics to uncover the nothing that is at the heart of most things.
